This is the moment a man threw £110 worth of takeaway in the air after slipping on black ice – before picking it up and eating it moments later.
Conrad North, 38, had ordered 23 dishes from Indian takeaway The Spice, ahead of a Saturday night evening with his six friends.
Having placed the order and told it would be an hour for delivery Conrad decided to beat the wait and collect the order instead.
CCTV footage outside his friend’s home in Basingstoke, Hampshire, shows Conrad shuffling in the snow before slipping on a strip of black ice, hitting his head on a car and hurling the two takeaway bags in the air.
Seconds later he lifts himself up and rushes towards the splattered grub sprinkled across the pavement and popping it back into the paper takeaway bag.
He then walks away with his tail between his legs Conrad before serving it all up and continuing the night of drinking.
Conrad, a parcel delivery driver said: “I was spending the Saturday night with the lads in our newly built ‘man cave’.
“We decided to get a takeaway before getting on the beers.
“Everything slows down when snow’s about so I suggested going to pick it up as it was only a five minute drive away.
“When we pulled up outside the house I was doing my best to tread carefully.
“But I managed to find the only bit of black ice to slip over and the bags went flying up in the air.
“I didn’t realise I had hit my head until I watched it back. I suppose it was just shock.
“I saw the absolute carnage and did my best to hoover it back up.
“My mate came over and asked if I was hurt.
“I told him I was fine then he asked if he could ask laugh.
“When I walked in the door I was carrying the takeaway with two hands.
“As soon as I told everyone they burst out laughing.
“I still served it up and we had a good night.
“It didn’t taste any different. I’m glad I managed to save it all.
“Thankfully I got off without any bruises or scratches.
“The only thing I damaged was my pride.”
